View, Download the Vision Zero Toolkit

Our Vision Zero Toolkit is designed for city and county staff, elected officials, and other transportation and planning professionals who would like to see their jurisdiction adopt and implement Vision Zero, the goal to eliminate traffic deaths and life-altering injuries on our roadway. SVBC, along with California Walks, created the Toolkit to provide the short-, mid-, and long-term steps that a city can take to reduce major collisions. Informed by best practices from around the globe, we hope that this Toolkit will provide a roadmap for cities to work toward this important goal. Advocates can also use this guide to understand what actions to ask their jurisdictions to implement at the local level to end roadway fatalities and life-altering injuries. The Vision Zero Toolkit is framed using the “Five E’s” of street safety improvements (Evaluation and Planning Engineering, Enforcement, Education, Encouragement). It is essential that municipalities also think of Engagement and Equity as they work toward a Vision Zero program that is inclusive and impactful. Vision Zero cannot be achieved without looking at changes in each of the categories. Download the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition / California Walks Vision Zero...
Help  Guide Our Work Towards Caltrain’s Bike-Friendly Future

Help Guide Our Work Towards Caltrain’s Bike-Friendly Future

Tweet Share As you may know, Caltrain voted on a bike-friendly future for its transit service at their July 2, 2015 meeting. Caltrain’s Board committed to providing more bike space on the trains as well as significant improvements to bike parking at their stations. This win would not have been possible without the support of you, our members. We want to make bike parking at Caltrain as easy and convenient as possible for you, so you have more options on how to get around. To do that, we need to hear from you about how you connect your bike with Caltrain and what are the challenges and desired improvements. We’ve put together a brief survey with our partners at San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, please take a few minutes to fill it out and better inform our work. Please share this survey broadly! Jim Hartnett, head of Caltrain and Samtrans, will be one of the opening plenary speakers at the 5th Annual Silicon Valley Bike Summit next Wednesday, August 26. This is another great opportunity to hear directly about Caltrain’s plans for bikes and provide your input on the future of bike...
Summer Bicycling Workshops for 100 San Jose Youth + Free Bikes!

Summer Bicycling Workshops for 100 San Jose Youth + Free Bikes!

Bikes and sunny days: what could be better? This summer, SVBC partnered with the City of San Jose’s Fit Camp program to deliver fun, engaging, and educational bicycling workshops to youth throughout the city. Nearly 100 youth from six community centers gained knowledge and confidence as they learned essential bike riding skills through instruction, fun games, bicycle rodeos, maintenance workshops, and rides. Some of the top highlights from camps included a couple of rides through neighborhood streets and along the Los Gatos Creek Trail. Through this program, we were also as able to donate 18 bikes and 39 helmets to youth in most need, as well as provide a fleet of bikes for the Roosevelt Community Center to utilize in future year-round bike programs. These bikes were donated by Palo Alto-based software company TIBCO, who also enjoyed a fun, team-building day of building the bikes and getting them ready for the youth. We thank TIBCO for their generous donation of bikes and the City of San Jose’s Safe Summer Initiatives program for funding these workshops that kept youth active and engaged through the summer.
